Error description

  • If the CCSID field of the connection factory used by a WebSphere
    MQ message listener port is not specified then migrating the
    listener port definition to an activation specification
    definition causes the error 'null' to be reported in the
    administrative console and a java.lang.NumberFormatException is
    reported in the FFDC logs.
    
    The CCSID field is not required and if null the default
    value of 819 should be used in the activation specification by
    WMQ.
